Tony Blair's war lust laid bare at Chilcot inquiry

Issue No. 2236

It was a case of deja vu as warmonger Tony Blair put in his second appearance at the Iraq inquiry last Friday.

He was once again allowed to dodge question after question. Again, the inquiry did not press him on his lies.

And, like last time, he used the platform to call for the bombing of Iran.

“They disagree fundamentally with our way of life and will carry on unless met with determination and, if necessary, force,” he said.

As the hearing ended, Rose Gentle, whose son Gordon died in the war, said, “Your lies killed my son.”

That’s Blair’s real legacy—and if the murderer had his way, he’d do it all over again.
